As a sex therapist, I specialize in treating sexual issues. These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy addresses problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink. I am passionate about helping clients overcome the issues that affect their sexuality so that they more fully enjoy life.

Many people come into therapy not knowing why they feel depressed, anxious, frustrated, or “stuck” in life. Others reach out because they are overwhelmed and unsure how to feel better. Through a safe and supportive therapy relationship, I help clients understand more about themselves and how to live a more meaningful life. As your therapist, I will give you space to talk through your concerns and adapt my style to best meet your needs. I will pay special attention to your experiences, beliefs, values, family background, and cultural identity to make sure that therapy is beneficial and respectful to you as a person.

I partner with individuals and organizations who have achieved great professional and financial success, and are hungry to connect more deeply with purpose, to express more fully and creatively, to feel more joyful and authentic in both the personal and professional realms. These leaders want to be more influential and impactful, but they want less of the burnout, overwhelm, "Not Enoughs", and, in many cases, Imposter Syndrome.

Do you currently struggle with a painful or even traumatic past? I believe in active acceptance as the most effective path towards change. Through a focus on values, clients learn to accept a difficult past towards a vital life in the present. To their credit, most clients have already tried to "get rid of" difficulties before therapy. They typically make the decision when realizing that their well-worn coping tools don't work and they're overwhelmed. Ideal clients are ready to actively engage in a collaborative process challenging them to let go of control/avoidance strategies towards a committed life in the present.

Now, as a pre-licensed clinician, I get the opportunity to sit with you and be wildly curious about who you are and who you want to become while acknowledging and processing the pain, challenges, and celebrations along the way.
